Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

This hearty, gluten-free and dairy-free meal is about as easy as it gets. Made some tweaks to this Betty Crocker recipe: Slow-Cooker Hearty Chicken and Noodle Soup. As adapted, here’s what it looks like: 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into rounds 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1″ dice 1 teaspoon […]

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

This is the second recipe I’ve tried for Blueberry Baked Oatmeal. There was nothing wrong with the first one, but this one was amazing: Blueberry Baked Oatmeal. The recipe gives you options and I went with the one that was both gluten-free and dairy-free. Great recipe. You get crispy edges, tender middle, not TOO sweet, […]

Slow Cooker Green Chile Chicken

This is a quick meal to prepare in a slow-cooker, great over rice or in tortillas. I sprinkled a little goat feta on top, but on its own it is both dairy-free and gluten-free. The recipe is below. There’s a lot of wiggle room on ingredients and quantity if you have preferences of what you want […]

Homemade Hummus

Tahini (pureed toasted sesame seeds) makes it extra nutty and creamy, and lemon and lime juice give it a summery freshness. Well worth it to make a batch fresh, and it only takes a few minutes. […]

Peach Crisp

Nothing better than ripe, fresh peaches in season. Some of the ones in this recipe came right off the tree in my parents’ backyard. This fast, easy recipe is perfect for making a simple, very homemade tasting dessert on a summer night: Paleo Peach Crisp. It is dairy-free and gluten-free. I made a couple changes […]
